Bringing It on QVC
There's been a few surreal moments since I started my P90X "journey" - one was seeing myself in the new P90X infomercial, after I had watched the previous one on television so many times. And the other was selling P90X on the QVC network after I had purchased my own P90X unit from QVC not quite two years earlier.
In September I traveled to QVC headquarters in Philadelphia, PA with my friends Tony, Mark Briggs, Jeremy Yost, Susan Lucy and Kit Caldicott to "bring P90X to the people." Wow, was it a whirlwind 72 hours! I left Los Angeles on a 10:00 am flight, arrived in Philly at 8:15 pm and was on-set at 1:00 am for a 2:00 am show. We got back to the hotel at about 3:45 am, knocked out a 12:00 noon workout the following day before that evening's "primetime" 6:00 pm show and then it was another show the following morning at 7:00 am before a 1:00 pm flight back to LA!
Talk about feeling "whipped!" Wow, was it fun though! The ratings for the shows were great and we hit all of QVC's goals, so that was cool. I'm hoping to return in early 2012 for another series of shows, and this time we've decided to run the "Rocky steps" and all do the "X" at the top!
